Starting Your Career in Mining

We are looking for curious and creative minds who want to bring different perspectives into our company. Here, you can work in a huge number of different roles, locations and areas of our business.

We work in some of the most remote, beautiful places in the world – like the Northwest Territories in Canada and Weipa in Far North Queensland, Australia – as well as in major metropolitan hubs like Montreal, Perth, Brisbane and Singapore.

You can work in exploration, looking to discover the next mineral source, or use data analytics to improve productivity. You can work in cyber security and mine geology, or with our logistics team, helping to get products to our customers faster and more reliably. You can help plan our mine infrastructure, or with our HR team, to make sure the right people are in the right place at the right time. The possibilities are endless.

Don't enter the future, invent it
